Cost Of Wedding Flowers in Australia
How much you should spend on wedding flowers depends on how important flowers are to you. In Australia, the average cost of wedding flowers is around $4,000, but the range at either end of the price spectrum is huge, with budget wedding florals starting at around $500 and spends often exceeding $25,000 at high end weddings.
Most couples spend 10 - 15% of their wedding budget on florals. When flowers are a major design feature of the wedding and include custom hanging installs, budgets can be as high as 20 - 30%. Packages with hanging installations typically start at around $10,000.
The cost of wedding flowers is based on the value of the flowers, their seasonal availability, complexity of design style and location of your venues. For couples who want ease of planning, many Australian florists offer all inclusive wedding flower packages tailored to your budget where you simply choose the colour palette and the florist chooses & designs the flowers.
Some wedding florists offer full styling services and have decor and hire items such as candles, candlesticks, table runners, draping and vessels with which to style arbours and table scapes. Others offer end-to-end styling, planning & florals with budget, timeline and vendor management included.
Wedding Flower Packages
Due to seasonality of blooms and the effect of weather on the availability of wedding flowers, there are very few wedding flower packages with a guaranteed list of inclusions. For this reason, most wedding florists are only able to provide an accurate indication of costs for weddings within 12 months.
If your wedding is more than 12 months away, it would be prudent to budget an extra 15% for potential price increases on any quote you request now. Also be aware that flowers are a natural product reliant on growing conditions, and hence specific blooms may not be available for your wedding date. In this instance, your wedding florist will create similar designs working to your colour palette and style of your wedding.
In Australia, the starting price of all inclusive wedding flower packages range between $3,000 - $12,000 and typically include:
- Bridal bouquet
- 3 or 4 Bridal party bouquets
- 5 or 6 buttonholes
- Ceremony installation
- Bridal table arrangements
- Centrepieces for each table
- Hanging installations (higher end of budget only)
- Signage & cake florals
- Set up & bump out
Wedding Bouquet Packages
The average bridal bouquet ranges in price from $250 - $420. The addition of higher value botanicals and flowers such as orchids increase the price, as does bouquets with a greater volume of buds & blooms. You can expect quotes within the following ranges for these popular wedding floral items:
- Bridal Bouquet: $220 - $500
- Bridal Bouquet & Groom Buttonhole: $130 - $299
- Bridal Party Package: $720 - $2,500 (bridal & groom, 3x bridal party, 2x mum & dad)

Ceremony Flower Packages
Wedding ceremony packages start from $2,000 and include the Bridal bouquet, a bouquet or posy for 3 or 4 bridesmaids, 4 or 5 button holes, an arbour arrangement, tossing petals and the delivery & set up of your ceremony installations.
Packages to solely style your ceremony area start at $850 and can include altar florals (pots, plinths, arbour attachments & custom installs such as tree creepers), signing table arrangements, aisle decorations and throwing petals.
Many wedding florists in Australia have arches to hire for your ceremony which is a handy option when your venue provides all other furniture as it means you can avoid engaging a hire company. Here's what you can expect to pay for ceremony flowers:
- arch hire: $200
- corner features: $600 - $750

- signage florals: $150+
- rose petals: $180+
Reception Flower Packages
The cost of reception flowers is based on guest numbers, catering choices (as to how the table will be set up & associated floral requirements), the complexity of designs, selection of botanicals and use of other styling materials.
Many wedding florists provide signature vases, vessels, candles and other deco items that you either buy or hire as part of your floral package. Some wedding florists for example will provide tall stands that allow for a subtle floral canopy rather than florals that occupy valuable table space.
There are a vast range of options for styling your wedding reception with florals from decorating welcome signs, to fitting out bar tops, to ceiling installs, feature walls and of course table arrangements. Here's a guide to the cost of reception florals & styling:
- table arrangements: $180+ each

How to Save Money on Wedding Flowers
The price of wedding flowers is heavily based on the value of the flowers, so if you're on a budget you can save money by using in-season booms that are in plentiful supply & easily accessible at the time of your wedding.
Choose venues that do not require a lot of floral artistry to elevate them into a space you love. Finding spaces that have stand alone features such as amazing decor, a gorgeous backdrop or view you really love means less budget on floral styling.
Blank canvas wedding venues often offer a cheaper hire fee which seems like a prudent choice when booking in the first of your wedding suppliers, however come closer to the big day, you end up paying more for wedding flowers to luxe-up an otherwise bland space. Beware of scope creep.
Reuse florals from one space to another such as repurposing ceremony installations within your reception venue. If you're wanting a dramatic installation in your reception space, the cheapest option is to use loads of foraged foliage.
How to Enquire with a Wedding Florist
In the first instance, you'll want to find wedding florists who are available on your wedding date and who's work resonates with you best. For florists to confirm their availability they'll need a rough idea of the volume of work involved in your booking. Hence, aim to provide as much detail as you can in your enquiry such as:
- # of arrangements required for your family & bridal party
- wedding theme & colour scheme
- style of bouquet
- type of ceremony arbour + other ceremony styling requirements
- type of reception (cocktail or seated)
- location of your ceremony & reception
- your budget
Once you've received confirmation of availability you can ask for a consultation to discuss floral concepts and seasonal flower options. Your florist will build a brief of the scope and style of your wedding and provide a quote.
